in Hocking Hills, Ohio.
HOCKING HILLS + BEAUTIFUL TRAILS =
GREAT HORSEBACK RIDING !
Welcome Y'all - to our information website.
In Feb. 2013 - we moved from our former location ....
please see our 'Contact Us' page for addy & directions !
Well - December has Arrived ....
& that means we are now officially CLOSED for the Winter ..... Wow - where did 2013 go ??
It was a very hectic year .... probably the worst since we started - we had moved to a new house & had to figure out how we were gonna do things & many times, it was some hair-brained ideas; but, we made em work ! LOL
MANY thanks to all those riders - who stuck it out with us this year & some, for many years. Thanks to those who we couldnt take riding for one reason or another, but understood & said -- 'next time' ! We have YEARS of work ahead of us, improving our own property --- it's gonna be our Final & Biggest 'neverending' project .... cause it'll never be completely finished
One of our many Thanksgiving Blessings, was seeing my Father feeling a little better .... atleast some of his health issues - have finally been diagnosed - & they are treatable. He is on medication for them & seemed to be improving just a few days later. Also, test on an ongoing heart condition - show NO Change - which is a good thing
We will ride for ourselves a few times over the Winter Break - also needing to ride the new addition *Cowboy* as much as I can, whenever the weather is decent.
We will update everything, when we are ready to start rides in the Spring - Usually @ March 1st.
Happy Holidays & Good Winter, to each & every one of Ya !!!! Becky @ Blue Moon
We are a small public stable; & a great place for a "Trail-Riding Adventure" ... Specializing - in Individuals, Couples & small groups, of Adults & Teens. Appealing to those 'Adventurous Folks' - who want a more personal horseback riding experience for their group, with individual attention; instead of going in large mixed groups.
Even the more seasoned riders will enjoy our unique stable !
The Fun, Challenging & Scenic trails here, are anything but boring for adults & older teens; BUT, for most very young & inexperienced riders - are Too Much. Exceptions, sometimes can be made - based on experience level - for younger riders.
Your experience here - will be quite different from other public stables; for starters, we welcome you as NEW FRIENDS ! Our horses primarily follow the directions of their rider; so, YOU are in primary control of your steed & they're not just following the tail in front of their nose. You will be instructed in all the basics & encouraged to be a 'Partner' with your horse.
A Guide will go with you to offer assistance & answer questions.
The Guide controls direction & speed; going where & how they feel you can safely manage. Please, follow instructions; as they have you & the horses best interests - at heart. Also, we ride according to trail conditions & what the skill levels of the riders are (or, what they can learn). A 'Trot or Gait' (2nd Gear) happens on most rides & even a 'Canter' (3rd Gear or Slow Run) - on many.
*** WITH US - WE DO NOT WANT YOU TO FEEL LIKE 'JUST A PASSENGER' --- WE WANT YOU TO 'LEARN TO RIDE' !
